A Spoonfull of Sugar

Hi everyone, hope you are all well and dry! it is absolutely bucketing it down here, I actually like this kinda day, listening to the rain the grey sky lol, my son has gone to school without a coat and do you think I can find his coats??? I know he needs a new one but I know I wouldnt have chucked the old one without having a new one, grrrrrrrrrrrr! so I will get wet letting him shelter under mine lol. Coat shopping asap! Making my card for the challenge made me realise again lol that I havent brought a single stamp since before I was pregnant eeeek, no wonder I seem to have a severe lack of inspiration! I must get some new items soon! Next week it will be 3 mths since I gave up the ciggies and my gosh I am so proud of me, It hasnt been all plain sailing but it has been the easiest time ever for me to quit and to be honest now it is getting harder as the weeks pass, not quite sure why tho but I am being strong! temptation is such a cruel thing!

I have made a card for the challenge over on A Spoonful of Sugar which this week the theme is "Fall into Autumn" I love this time of year with the Autumnal colours and the dark nights drawing in, ooooh it will soon be Christmas :O)

I have used an OLD Tilda, but I like her still, and coloured her with polychromos pencils. I mounted her onto a sizzix oval. The patterned papers are K&Co and I added some ribbons and corraguated card, a few punched leaves and the sentiment is Hero Arts.

Thanks for Stopping by and
